At the End of Our Journey

We spend our last moments in Hong Kong. Just to remind us we travelled to the tropics, we had a last big downpour today.

The city is superb, one of the best things about it is that we could check in for our midnight flight in the morning in the city, and our luggage was taken by an express train to the airport. We followed them only later.

This made it easy for us to make a sightseeing trip today, but we checked in our raincoats as well...

Never mind, after the storm we ate lobster in a fishing village (yes, there are things like that in the big Hong Hong), being as wet as if we had just jumped into the waters of Victoria Harbour. It wasn't too bad in the 28 degrees Celsius, anyway.

As we know it will be 2 degrees in Helsinki when we change flights at dawn, but luckily we only have to watch it through the windows. On our flight here it was still snowy.

On Monday morning we'll be in Budapest, and that concludes our journey this year, which has been the most advanturous so far.
